Hello good people, I have a question that I would really appreciate getting an answer to it. I filed an injury on the job back in 2002 or so but continued working since they accommodated me the best they could. I received from workers comp medical follow ups and medications.
The work even with the accommodation was unbearable and in order to finish my working day I was taking great doses of pain killers. I finally was able to transfer to another agency in which the job switched from very physical to sitting down all day job. Since the pain on my back did not stop, I went back to my doctor. After doing a new MRI he found another herniated disc. amounting now to 3 degenerative discs.
Is it possible to reduce my working hours and get on the wage compensation part of the insurance now without filing a new claim? I am not sure the new agency (federal government) will grant my worker's comp. but working full time is becoming difficult to accomplish.
I live in Utah County, if I need a lawyer, do you know of a good one out there?
THANKS A MILLION
